Hermes' New Set-up!

Since I don't think I've ever posted photos of Hermes' cage on here I thought I would post new photos I just took of it.
This is his cage/set-up; he is located in my art room which is basically the bird room, lol. Eventually I want to buy hanging swings, boings, orbiters, etc to hang from the roof in there.

I re-arranged his cage the other day and he seems to like it more!




He hasn't used his play stand yet (I just bought it a week ago) but it's been sitting beside his cage since then so hopefully he's used to it by now! I just put it on top today.

Hope you like!

Great set-up. What is the size of the cage, it looks a little small.

I think its big enough since he can move around and spends time outside as well

Looks great!! I'd love to make a playstand, but the drill is somewhere in the basement and I don't want to go search for it right now

Missing you always

Yep, it's the minimum size for a 'Tiel but he's happy with it. I'll be looking for a bigger one eventually though.

I WAS going to make a play stand but I was too lazy too, hahaha. So I just went out and bought one. :P

Yep, a flight cage shall be in his future! I can't wait although I think I'll have problems decorating it, lol. It took me a while to fill this cage up because I'm always so indecisive when it comes to picking things for the birds!

*edit- wanted to add that these pictures make his cage look way smaller than it is! The fact that the play stand and the branch out front are pretty large and the shelves the cage is on are storage shelves so they're really big! It's bigger than it looks.

Love the branch off the front of the cage. He can really change his view of the room and his world, can't he? Very creative, and I'm sure it will keep him entertained with all its options.

Now, will we see pictures of His Majesty playing on the various exciting customizations of his home?

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile

Thank-you!
I will try to get photos of him playing but most of the time he just wants to be sitting on me, lol. So far he was scared of his play stand last time but hopefully if I put some millet on it he'll give it a try!
I shall get photos, whatever I have to do! Hahaha.
